I booked this hotel as an upgrade to a trip I planned on an online European tour company. I chose it mainly because it is situated in a prime location inside the walls of Siena, but would stay again because it's a fantastic hotel. From check in to checking out, everything was perfect. The staff are very nice, helpful and...

The first thing I noticed was how helpful the staff was in helping me with parking my car (not an easy feat in Siena!) before I had checked in. The hotel staff was also very helpful in arranging restaurants to eat in although its own restaurant is great, too. The rooms and interior are very nice, the location is perfect....right...

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights at the hotel and we really loved it - with one exception to be addressed later. Our travel consultant selected it and for good reason; the location is fantastic, the hotel is a wonderful mix of old and new, it feels really elegant but not stuffy in any way. The staff is...

This hotel is a nice hotel that is right in the heart of Sienna. Lots of shops and restaurants in walking distance. The staff goes above and beyond to help if you need anything. My only complaint was that our room was by the main road which seemed to be very busy with people walking till about 2 am. Needless...

We had a fabulous room overlooking the pedestrian-only main street of Siena. Perfect location. Short walk to Piazza del Campo and iL Doumo and other main sites of town. Service was outstanding. Room was spacious and well-decorated with a beautiful exposed beam ceiling. The hotel was converted from a former private palace. The rooms and common areas are unique and...

I did not research this hotel other than look at the ratings on TripAdvisor, so I did not know what to expect. Wow, what a magnificent hotel! The building is grand and opulent. A palatial marble staircase leads you to the first floor. [No worries, there is an elevator.] I felt like royalty when I walked into the room: the...

After looking at the hotels website we had huge expectations to this hotel. It really was not that special. Some nights later we stayed at a 4 star hotel in Santa Margherita Ligure with was much much better. Rooms are ok, but a bit "old. Cracks in the wall. Stained carpet. Noisy. Also our bathroom was not clean. There was...

Dear Guest, your review has met our best attention. The highlighted matter has been throughly investigated but most suprisingly nothing was reported during any recent stay. The evidence posted certainly does not correspond to the regular standards of our accomodation and a simular shortcoming would have been promplty dealt with appropriate actions. We are sorry that we were not given...

What a wonderful hotel. The decor alone is a treat...grand and opulent. It is quiet, and you would not know we are on the main walking route to Siena's main attractions. Our room is lovely, cool and tastefully decorated with high ceilings and a very nice bathroom. The staff are most helpful and friendly. Breakfast has a good range. I...

The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the old city, and is a very easy trip to Duomo. The rooms are large, and are very well appointed, with a humongous bathroom, and great beds. The hotel itself is very quiet and night, and unlike many others can be _completely_ dark due to the high quality black out shades....
